The Show of the Year 2017

Listen to The Show of the Year 2017

2017: it's been thrilling; it's been terrible; it's been … a rocky ride.

At the Wheeler Centre's annual Show of the Year, we brought together a stellar line-up of comedians, musicians, writers and raconteurs to remember the year that was.

2017 didn't always treat us right (nuclear war threats, postal surveys, The Mummy) but it had its charming moments (BBC Dad, Beyoncé’s twins). The year crept up on us fast; we sent it packing in style.

There was plenty of material for performers to choose from, and this episode brings together highlights from the show for your listening pleasure.

Note: This audio contains some strong language.
